Meal Planning Monday

In an attempt to save money, eat better and eat down the massive amounts of tins and frozen stuff we have I've decided to be a lot stricter about menuing the week.

Lunch time is a bit of a free for all so I haven't planned for that. We've been having slightly bigger breakfasts that keep tummy's fuller for longer, including a cereal and a protein each day, but not going as far as a full English every day. Tea time is still the main meal of the day and we are eating as a family again, having spent a few weeks with the kids and grown ups eating at different times.

The nice people from Schwartz have sent us some Flavour shots and some Perfect Shake so they will feature in some meals this week. I'm also hoping to replace mince with soya protein for some meals to keep costs down though I'm thinking half meat, half soya to being with.

Here's the plan for this week:

My kids love cooked breakfasts before heading to school and I love that they are full and ready for the day :) Love the sound of garlic fried rice must try that.

Its made such a difference having something hot and with protein in it. No more asking for biscuits by 10am!
